Heres a great little piece of tech that, although you don't think you need it now, you'll probably wonder why the world went so long without it . This micro USB cable, designed by Dustin Orndorff, is a well executed solution that may just mark the end of the dark ages for charging cables.
The premise is simple this is a micro usb cable with a button and an LED light in the connector end. When plugging your device in to charge pressing a button at the same time will give you enough light to see exactly where the USB needs to connect.
If you back Dustin with $9 you will be rewarded with a 3' cable. A 6' cable is available for $12 and there is a curly cable option as well.
